ASU Sportsfields – Booster Pump Station Project

ASU Sportsfields – Booster Pump Station Project

The university converted a former golf course into a sports field facility. The water is supplied by the municipal water system. The dynamic pressure from the municipal system can be as low as 25 PSI. The sports field irrigation system requires 100 PSI. The booster pump station adds 75 PSI to the municipal water supply.

Location: Phoenix, AZ

Flow Rate: Irrigation Water Supply = 800 GPM

Boost Pressure: Irrigation Water Supply = 75 PSI

Pumps: End Suction Centrifugal

Customer Challenge: PPS worked with the irrigation consultant to design a variable speed system that would automatically produce enough pressure boost to ensure that the irrigation system supply was consistently 100 PSI despite variations in the municipal supply pressure variations.

Project Scope:

The university converted a former golf course into a sports field facility. The water is supplied by the municipal water system. The dynamic pressure from the municipal system can be as low as 25 PSI. The sports field irrigation system requires 100 PSI. The booster pump station adds 75 PSI to the municipal water supply.

Electric butterfly valve on pump station intake for automatic isolation when the excessive flow is detected. The pump station is housed in a PPS marine grade aluminum enclosure. The control panel includes a closed-loop air conditioning system.

After installation PPS learned that multiple entities utilized water from the pump station, and each needed to monitor their water usage individually. PPS connected to the system remotely and downloaded a custom patch to make this possible.

The project fit the space perfectly as intended, functioned exactly as expected, and was delivered on time and on budget.

This pump station utilizes a PPS Marine Grade Aluminum Enclosure.

"Thank you for developing a compact, cost effective, and innovative package pump station to meet the needs of the Eugene Water and Electric Board. The project site presented many challenges such as constraining property lines, steep topography, and high visibility; making a compact package pump station the most ideal solution. I have enjoyed working with the PPS staff and look forward to our next project."
